Audacious Pruning

My mentor and friend, Janet, posted this on her facebook page:  “Good time of year to audaciously cross things OFF the way too long ‘to do’ lists!”

What a great idea!  You weren’t going to do them anyway (you have the proof – you haven’t done them yet!), so why carry the guilt and the burden of thinking you “ought” to do them?

Nothing is quite as energising and relieving as reflecting on your priorities, being realistic about what you can and cannot do during your finite time on Earth, taking stock of what you do and do not really want to do and adjusting your To Do list accordingly.

Make space for your best work and your favourite ways to spend your time.  Free your mind from thinking about stuff that is just never going to happen.  Cross things off your list now!  🙂

About tropicaltheartist

You can find out more about me here: https://michaeltopic.wordpress.com/. There aren’t many people that exist in that conjunction of art, design, science and engineering, but this is where I live. I am an artist, a musician, a designer, a creator, a scientist, a technologist, an innovator and an engineer and I have a genuine, deep passion for each field. Most importantly, I am able to see the connections and similarities between each field of intellectual endeavour and apply the lessons I learn in one discipline to my other disciplines. To me, they are all part of the same continuum of creativity. I write about what I know, through my blogs, in the hope that something I write will resonate with a reader and help them enjoy their own creative life more fully. I am, in summary, a highly creative individual, but with the ability to get things done efficiently. Not all of these skills are valued by the world at large, but I am who I am and this is me. The opinions stated here are my own and not necessarily the opinion or position of my employer.
